When you put him down in his crib, is it well after he has fallen asleep and is he swaddled nice and tight. Does he sleep on his back, tummy or side? I found with my son that if he fell asleep with me tummy to tummy and I put him down on his back, he woke up. You could also try getting a duvet inner (single) with an outer in a pattern you like for his room. Wrap yourself in it for a night or two while you watchinf tv maybe, ?? , and let him lie on that in his crip. He's so small, all he knows now is the comfort of your voice, your warmth and your scent. If he's wrapped up tight and he can smell his mom, maybe - just maybe - he'll stay asleep....

Good luck!!
